Surveys: Creating, Conducting and Presenting for Special Ed with digital activities



Total Pages 170 pages PLUS 56 google slides
Answer Key Included
Teaching Duration 3 Weeks


This unit on Surveys has almost 200 pages and 56 google slides of material specifically designed for students with special learning needs, especially autism who are in middle and high school. This unit focuses on helping students understand what makes a good survey, how to give one, and how to understand and present the results. There are differentiated versions of the worksheets that use pictures and color coding. There are lots of ways for students to practice these skills in this unit that are at different levels. There are MANY opportunities for students to engage in repeated information on learning about objectives, questions, bias, population, and predictions. This repetition helps students develop learning patterns. In addition, there is an engaging learning experience that guides students step by step from coming up with an objective to presenting your survey results. There are detailed instructions and templates to help guide them through this 6 learning task experience.

****This unit now has digital versions of most of the activities from this unit. There are 56 google slides and a movie version of the book.

Much of what I have learned about curriculum development is incorporated in these units. For example, do not be afraid of repetition. It is critical that students with significant disabilities get to experience material over several days to be able to fully assimilate what is being taught. Also, adding visual supports to your printables and class activities helps students be able to pay more attention to the content you are presenting rather than the mechanics of what is expected. Finally, ask questions. Good questions!! Regardless of the material, if we can ask students good questions it will push them to think more deeply than before.

As always please take a moment to leave feedback or post any questions you may have. 

I am currently developing more units, and any feedback I get helps me make improvements in the future. Plus, it just means a lot to me.
